Cigs. Weed. Drank.

Anytime you reach for one of these, you are asking for a pace setter. You are essentially attempting to slow the rate at which you are receiving emotional and spiritual feedback.

Stop trying to start, finished.

Stop trying to start, finished.

(Learn more about Santlov’s featured image here) The look of finished is coming too easily, all while we are coming to find out that the actual doing is still as hard-won as it always has been.  We’re trying to start at the end. Photo shoots, videos, even creative direction. It all used to come the later...

A Word on Doin’ Too Damn Much!

A Word on Doin’ Too Damn Much!

Nobody tells you this when you’re scaling, but a word of warning, it sucks.

The Law of Attraction is an Algorithm

When the Law of Attraction first came on the scene, it was crazy talk. Now, it’s an algorithm. I tend to check Instagram about once a day. I don’t have the Facebook App and I don’t get notifications on Linkedin’s news feed. We live in an “if you like that, then you’ll love this” kind...

Hustle Harder…No.

Hustle Harder…No.

As someone who is completely done with the recovery time after quarterly burnouts and spirals if despair, I’m through with the Great American Hustle experiment. Seeing this stupid shit plastered on memes and shiny glass windows of co-working spaces, had me working in the exact opposite direction of my greatest strengths. I would venture to...
